On being cursed

January 28, 2010

What in fact is there to say
when one tells you you are cursed?
Like King David, shall you pray
that his curses be reversed?
Shall you trade a list of sins,
show who loses and who wins,
stand before the public’s bar,
show the soul’s each wound and scar?

Those who seek the throne of grace,
caught up in their deepest faults,
flung far from the Father’s face,
find that man’s unkind assaults
make their misery no worse.
Jesus who became a curse
when he hung upon a tree
blessing is enough for me.
